Tandoori Oven Restaurant Review: Folks know they are in for something different the moment they walk in the front door of Tandoori Oven. Diners are greeted immediately by pumping techno tunes, vibrant green-and-gold colors, and modern track lighting. Then there's usually a line, especially during busy lunch hours, as hungry souls queue up to order at the counter from a lengthy menu that boasts 50-plus dishes. The food ranks with some of the best more-formal Indian restaurants in the area. There's a lot to love on the chaat (appetizer) menu, including puffy samosas, spicy shrimp pakora, and a goodly selection of specialty naans, including aloo (spicy potato), gobi (cauliflower), and chicken pesto. For a main course, try the first-rate tandoori chicken salad, which delivers slices of lean breast meat and shredded romaine lettuce in a mint dressing, or the fiery lamb curry. The lunch crowd may choose the chicken wrap, which is a naan-wrapped sandwich of chopped chicken, tomatoes and cucumbers in a mint chutney sauce.
